Using Skills privately

Hi, Can I add a Skill to Echo device in a way that only be accessible to me? Based on my understanding of the Echo architecture, every Skill that you add to Echo would be accessible to everyone in the world who use Echo. Suppose that I create a Skill that allow me to control my PC with Echo, is there any way to limit this Skill to be only available to me? Obviously I don't want anyone in the world to control my PC with Echo!

Yes. Don't submit it for publication. And in your app, verify that the applicationId in the request matches the applicationId in your developer account. Then no one else would be able to access it.
